We are very proud of the fact that many top make-up artists rave about Willowberry. Making nutritious natural skincare to help your skin look the best it can is what we do. This also preps the skin beautifully for make-up; It stands to reason that if your skin is clean, hydrated, smooth and radiant then you are providing the best canvas for make-up application.
Top A-list make-up artists including Caroline Barnes, Ruby Hammer, Hannah Martin, Pauline Briscoe, Mary Wiles and many more have raved about Willowberry, and our products have been used on such beauties as Fearne Cotton, Mary McCartney and Helen Skelton.
Why do top make-up artists love Willowberry?
Our skincare products enhance the complexion and provide the perfect base for make-up. Make-up is therefore easier to apply and glides on smoothly. As make-up artist Lauren McCormack says, Willowberry delivers “glowy skin essentials”.
Starting with cleansed, nourished, happy skin is always going to be the best prep for make-up. Willowberry Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm not only washes your face but nourishes and hydrates at the same time. As make-up artist Daniel Sandler testifies: “On days when my skin feels really thirsty and needs extra care and comfort, I turn to Willowberry’s Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm and Nutrient Boost Day Cream. Both products really nourish and help to make my skin feel hyper-moisturised and more comfortable.”
Giving Skin Moisture
Willowberry Nutrient Boost Day Cream hydrates, plumps and smooths to nourish skin to a healthy glow, worthy of a make-up masterclass. Tricia Woolston agrees: “After applying Willowberry Eye Cream, Face Oil, and Nutrient Boost Day Cream, just look at this glow! I’m so happy I found you [Willowberry] #nofilter”.
And Min Sandhu’s love of our Day Cream has spilled over into an obsession: “It feels and looks magical on my combination skin. It’s rich and nourishing and doesn’t just sit on the skin but absorbs nicely without leaving the skin looking greasy. It’s also made my skin look really smooth with a perfect amount of dew. Check this brand out. I’m OBSESSED with the day cream!”
Get Your Glow On
Willowberry Face Oil and Sensitive Face Oil are particular make-up artist favourites. Perhaps that’s because, as well as prepping the skin to perfection, our face oils can also do double-duty as part of your make-up routine: Try as a subtle highlighter on cheekbones to add radiance, or mix in with your regular foundation to give skin a healthy, gorgeous glow. Caroline Barnes, the first top make-up artist to discover Willowberry, agrees: “Willowberry Face Oil is super rich but super light and works so beautifully under and over make-up. I tap a little bit of oil around my eyes where my fine lines are. I don’t want to look sparkly or glittery, I just want to look like I’ve got glowing skin.”
Our Face Oil is also a kit staple for make-up supremo Hannah Martin: “The Face Oil is one of my faves. Such a great fix for dry or textured skin”, and celebrity MUA Ruby Hammer: “One of the best oils is from Willowberry. I love how it smells. I just push it into the skin.”
The testimonials just keep on coming. Emma White Turle loves it because it’s: “Light and absorbs quickly. Leaves skin hydrated and glowing. Perfect for make-up.”
And Debbie Finnegan rates the long-term effect it has had on her skin: “I’ve been using it as a treatment on my skin before I go to bed and I feel like the condition of my skin has improved so much from using it. It’s definitely got a massive, massive thumbs up from me.”
The Big Reveal
Our latest release, Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator, is a daily, gentle liquid acid exfoliator which uses polyhydroxy acids to remove dead skin cells and reveal the radiant skin underneath.
Make-up artist Charlie Duffy points out that even those sensitive types who usually shy away from acid exfoliators can enjoy the benefits of this one: “Gentle exfoliation even on sensitive skin. Refines skin texture. Brightens. Hydrates. Protects.” Mira Parmar agrees: “The most delicate liquid exfoliator, perfect for sensitive skins…not harsh at all! This brightens, smooths and hydrates the skin.”
The joy of Willowberry Reviving Eye cream is its gentleness which doesn’t leave eyes stinging or watering – definitely not a good make-up look – but hydrates and brightens.
Take it from top make-up artist Jane Bradley: “Another great product from Willowberry, which doesn’t make my eyes water!” It also gets the seal of approval from Hannah Martin: “Really nice and light and therefore great for underneath make-up, to delicately hydrate skin.”
Even our Willowberry Indulgent Hand & Body Lotion has found its way into top make-up artist kits. Tricia Woolston claims: “Can’t do a shoot without it! Obsessed with the latest Willowberry Hand & Body Lotion! Absolutely love it.”
